Jörg Buttgereit, Germany, 1987, Arrow Films, Horror

“The first erotic film for necrophiles.”
—John Waters

An underground hit in the VHS-era, this one-in-a-million trash-art experience from Germany has lost none of its transgressive power. NEKROMANTIK tells the story of sad sack Rob, a street-cleaner who visits roadside accidents to mop up the scenes and collect body parts. When Rob shares the collection with his equally unfazed girlfriend Betty, their undying love reaches a special peak . . . and a morbid conclusion. Shot on gritty Super 8 film stock by sicko wunderkind Jorg Buttgereit and banned in numerous countries, NEKROMANTIK is THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE for degenerates—an uncompromising nightmare that lives up to its notorious reputation.
